Mother's Day Gift Ideas - Meaningful Gifts

Mother's Day is almost here, can you believe it?!  It is on May 13th this year, and we will just have gotten back from The Bahamas so I am planning some ideas ahead of time.  I already have one of my mom's gifts ready to go, but I obviously can't say here because she reads my blog (or at least I hope she does!).  This Mother's Day gift guide is full of items that you can order with relatively short shipping times.  These are all items that I already own, my mom owns, or items that are on my wish list!

Mother's Day Gift Ideas for 2018

Mother's Day Gift Guide. Practical gifts for mom from feminine pieces to tech items.

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve / thirteen / fourteen / fifteen / sixteen / seventeen / eighteen 

  1. Fit Bit: while I am an Apple watch girl, my mom owns a Fit Bit and loves it!  She is a walker and loves being able to track her steps.  I love the color of this band.
  2. Door Mat: my mom loves to switch up her door mats and this would be a fun way to update your moms front porch just in time for summer.  I own this mat and it's such a simple and classic one.
  3. Ring: I love gifting my mom techy stuff that she wouldn't normally think to purchase herself.  We gave her a Ring for Christmas and she loves it!  We own one too and I think everyone should have one.  It's imperative for us especially with little ones, but my mom likes to see who's at the door and what's been going on while she's away.
  4. Diff Sunglasses: my mom and I both own Diff sunnies and we love them!  The bright color of these pink ones are so perfect for Spring and Summer.  Use code CHELSEE25 for 25% off Spring styles!
  5. Pink Slippers: who doesn't love pink furry slippers?!  These ones look so comfy.  I own some that are similar and they get a lot of use.
  6. Coco Mademoiselle: hands down, my favorite scent ever.  My mom and I have both been wearing this for around 15 years.  I want to try different perfumes, but I always go back!
  7. Body Love:  obsessed with this book and it's principles.  My mom has recently been trying to cut down sugar and this breaks down all the reasons why and how to do it.  It's not your typical "diet" book, but more of a lifestyle change.
  8. Potting Bench: how cute is this?!  My mom is a huge gardener with a major green thumb, and this would be so cute in her back yard.  Perfect for any gardener!
  9. Mug: I own this mug (thanks Janet!) and it's just about the size of my head.  Perfect!
  10. Mama Ring: such a cute ring.  I'd love one of these for myself!
  11. Platform Sandals: ok, I can't say enough good things about these.  I had to buy them in two colors (blush and red) because they are just that comfortable.  You guys, I wore them in Vegas and they DIDN'T HURT.  That is unheard of.  My mom got them in Navy!
  12. Peony Gift Card: Adelman Peony Farm's is just about 30 minutes south of us and they have the most gorgeous Peonies.  You can purchase a gift card to give to the ladies in your life and when it comes time to get your Peonies in the fall, they can pick out their favorites and they'll ship them from right here in Oregon!
  13. Kendra Scott Necklace: I love Kendra Scott and I love this hot pink chain.  This is perfect for Summer!
  14. Cross Body: my mom loves her Vera Bradley crossbody purses.  They keep her organized with all the pockets.  She would love this print for Spring/Summer!
  15. Outdoor Clock: in love with this gorgeous clock!  This would look great hanging in her back yard.  I want one too!
  16. Tassel Earrings: we own several pairs of tassel earrings, and I love this baby pink color.  They are such a fun style right now and these won't break the bank.
  17. Sonos Speakers:  these were on my Christmas gift guide for men, and they've quickly become a favorite of mine.  We now own four!  One in our living room, kitchen, bedroom and bonus room.  They put out such great sound quality and I love being able to play the same music all over the house.  My mom has a Google Home for music right now, but I think she'd also appreciate these!  Again, the techy gifts are great to give mom because she probably wouldn't have thought she needed them and we help set them up!
  18. Pink Birkenstocks: I live in my Birks!  I loved them in the sixth grade and I really love them now.  My mom and I own several pairs and I think these would be great for the pool!

My girlfriend Arin over at Arin Solange At Home has her Mother's Day Gift Guide post up too!  Make sure to check it out here.  Check out my gift guide from last Mother's Day here (my collage skills have really come a long way!).

Thanks for reading and I hope you have the best Mother's Day!
